Lens flares are pointless in games unless the character on screen has something glass or plastic in front of their eyes like Crysis or Halo.

Its stupid when there are lens flares when playing as a character with no visor or helmet on, they must have glass eyes lol.

I agree man. Like when they have the water drip effect. Water doesn't drip from our eyes as if they were a pane of glass. I even see some third person games do this for no reason. It takes me out of the experience a bit because then I'm thinking "so I'm the director of a movie?".

I like being completely immersed in the experience and escape, not feel like the cameraman.

I'm more bothered by particles on the screen. Seriously, clean your lens. Why does the camera need to be so dirty.
All it does is hinder visibility.

Speaking of water, I like the way Far Cry 3 handled that whenever you come out of the water.

The Screenshots looks great, really.

Honestly I think the majority of these screenshots look bad. Enough with the bloom and blur. It's horrendous

Is it me or are these pics underwhelming? I see nothing special here.

They are simulating camera lens effects.

Wow makes me wanna go play Crysis 1 PC with the Virtual Reality High Texture Mod.

Great make a good game that looks like this!

First they arent stupid. Pepole can be stupid. Second they are there to add some fidelity to unreallistic rendering. They make the world feel more natural somewhat masking artificialness.

They called it CRYengine for a reason.

It makes you cry and go blind with all the shiny effects. LMAO

AKR1684d ago

It looks amazing!

Why hasn't this been added into the Wii U section? Wii U supports Cryengine.

AKR1684d ago

Cute man, very cute.
It's not my fault that Crytek supports the system.

If we can get those in a proper resolution it would be great.

ShinMaster1684d ago

Right click to open on a separate window/tab instead of left clicking the pics.

infamous-butcher1684d ago

I wouldn't say 1280 X 800 is an acceptable resolution to show off screens of an engine.
Giving the processing power that is available to devs these day I would be expecting at least 1080. Higher would be better.

ShinMaster1684d ago

But I think the main they were trying to show in these pics are the lens effects cause it's hard to see everything else in some of these pics lol
